A new type of leadership based on kindness

What is leadership and what does it mean to be a leader in the workplace? Our concept of leadership has changed in recent years as we realized we needed to rethink the roles within the company. This is why we permanently shelved our old leadership hierarchy in favor of a new kindness-based model. Kind leadership builds a virtuous mechanism of care in the relational space based on listening and sharing, in order to create a working environment in which motivation and wellbeing foster productivity and sustainability. This change is also underpinned by the concept of sustainability, which refers not just to the environment but also to the network of relationships that we are all part of.

How we work

We have a flexible organizational culture that has people as its central focus – we involve them and help them to create value through collaboration in an efficient way.

Agile methodology and remote working

The digital revolution is giving us the opportunity to rethink our business model and our organization. We apply an agile methodology to a whole slew of processes and projects, involving colleagues from different areas and using the very best new technologies and data. We also use remote working to help reconcile our people’s private lives with their professional commitments, thereby improving their quality of life. 

Personal development and continuous learning

We believe in a Human2Human approach and in continuous learning. We offer personalized development courses such as coaching, mentoring and job shadowing. We make use of a global training platform with thousands of examples of content on demand in five languages.

Diversity and Inclusion

For us at Enel, diversity means recognizing the uniqueness of each individual and their personal contribution to teamwork, their ability to provide an original perspective that enriches us all, strengthening our vocation for innovation and sustainability. This is why we have committed to creating an inclusive working environment in which everyone has the chance to play their part in company processes.

Our commitment to promoting cultural diversity is clear from the fact that we have staff with over 80 different nationalities who speak 24 different languages in the various countries in which we have a presence.  

In 2021, women accounted for 52.1% of the candidates selected. 23.6% of our managers were women compared to 21.6% in 2020, while 31.4% of middle management were female (up from 30.4% in 2020). 

In 2022, Bloomberg included us in its Gender Equality Index for the third time in acknowledgment of the actions we took to promote the presence of women on the Board, in managerial positions and as new hires, our contribution in terms of equal pay, design of social benefits and work/life balance solutions, and in sexual harassment prevention initiatives.

Also in 2022, we were named one of the Top 100 companies for the third year in Equileap’s Gender Equality Global Report & Ranking, and were the highest of all the Italian companies present. This is the result of our actions to promote the presence of women on the Board, in managerial positions and in employee selection, for our contribution to equal pay and the promotion of the wellbeing and work/life balance of all of our employees. Our human rights, prevention of violence, abuse and sexual assault practices were also recognized.  

In 2022 Enel appeared once again in the Refinitiv Diversity and Inclusion Index, topping the “Electric Utilities and Independent Power Producers” category, thanks to the growing presence of women at all levels throughout the organization.
